Description Delpy was a specialist in tranquil river scenes. He was a pupil of Daubigny and exhibited landscapes in his master's style until the end of the 19th century. This view of the well-known Baltimore expatriate George Lucas' house at Boissise-la-Bertrand, on the banks of the Seine River may have been painted in the summer of 1890, when Delpy visited Lucas on at least two occasions.
